The nominees for the 68th annual Tony Awards are in, and Wicked actress, and most recently Frozen star, Idina Menzel, has been nominated for her performance in the Broadway musical If/Then. ET chats with the actress about her return to Broadway and how life has changed since John Travolta mispronounced her name.
"It's just like being home really," the 42-year-old mother-of-one tells ET's Rob Marciano. "I'm a New York girl, and this has been my dream ever since I was a little girl. You go away for a little while. I had a baby out in California. You do other things. But I've always wanted to come back. I just wanted to be with something I felt really strongly about."
As for Travolta flubbing her name, he called her Adele Dazeem, when introducing her Let It Go performance at the Oscars, Menzel brushes it off, saying, "People have mispronounced my name my whole life. They've never done it that harshly."
Entertainment Tonight will have more from Menzel and the other top Tony Award nominees on Thursday's show. Check HERE for local listings!
